Shear Madness at the St. Jacobs Schoolhouse Theatre

Shear Madness

The Hilarious & Wacky Whodunit

Sept 12 to Dec 23, 2018

St. Jacobs Schoolhouse Theatre


Listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as America’s longest running play, Shear Madness continues to delight audiences with its unique blend of madcap improvisation and spine-tickling mystery.

Hairdresser Tony Whitcomb and manicurist Barbara DeMarco comb through the tasks of a normal day until concert pianist Isabel Czerny is murdered. Tony, Barbara, and the Shear Madness customers – Eleanor Shubert, Eddie Lawrence, Nick Rosetti and Mikey Thomas – are all suspects.

But whodunit? Witness the fun, put your detective skills to the test, and take a stab at solving the crime!
